Question about Televison & Video
The 'popping' your talking about, if it was a one time thing, is the florescence exciter going out. Most times it sounds like a really loud static electric pop. That being the case, your back light went out, but strangely didn't trip the rest of the TV's 'safety functions.
Theoretically, if one component like that goes out the whole system shuts down and (at times) gives you a blinking power light, alluding to a code of sorts. The poser supply to your back light isn't much of a complicated job to replace, but it too may cost some coin.
If you feel adventuresome, take your back panel off and look for a large board with surface mounted parts and several white plugs with white coated wires coming off of it. That is the exciter board. Don't remove it just yet, as your going to have to order the new part (it would be nice to know where and how things fit before you put the new one in). Somewhere down one side you'll see the model make and probably the manufacturer of this particular part.
Fire up your computer and do a Google search for that part. Most times it'll be an ebay guy that caters to LCD TVs that will have your part.
Hope this helped...
